So, AT&T, are you just messing with us again or what? Twice in the last year we discovered free WiFi services for the iPhone but you pulled it just before we could really get into it. What was the deal with that? Now, we’re getting text message notifications that read:

AT&T Free Msg: Your Apple iPhone now has free AT&T Wi-Fi access at thousands of hotspots nationwide, including Starbucks*. For info visit

Are you guys doing this for real now? You know, iPhone owners can only take so much abuse and teasing before it gets really aggravating. And to all our readers, did you get your text message this morning regarding the free WiFi? Has anyone tested it out yet to make sure it’s legit? Let us know so we can determine whether it’s here for good or if it’s just another senseless tease.
